    Paul Eason reported on the Strategic Planning Council meeting. The overall plan is to increase total headcount to 25,000 students which in turn will allow for more faculty lines, an increase in research output and everything else. The council has broken into four subgroups- students, faculty, community, and marketing. Eason is in the faculty subgroup. The faculty subgroup has worked on creating/editing the following goals: support a diverse faculty, inspire within and across interdisciplinary work, help to train new faculty in UNF culture, and work flexibility.
